    Saw his idea of sustainable fishing earlier this year, went Bass fishing and kept something like 47 Bass between 3 of them! He can be very good but sometimes I could cheerfully give the guy a slap.

    Re: Hugh Fearnly Whittingstall Fishing Program

    i think thats what hes saying sam , you can catch a lot of good keepers on a line without killing loads of other small fish in the process, sustainable fishing.
    im looking forward to it, the ad shows him on a trawler showing lots of good cod and pollock, about to be thrown overboard dead, probably because the boat is over quota, if this program doesnt bring this problem home, i dont know what will, because millions of people watch hugh fearnly whittingstals , and gordon ramsay and jamie oliver programs, and these programs normally hit hard, and they have changed things for the better in the past. i love watching these mysellf :yes:

    It seems the commercials are now onside with the discards issue, but part of me wonders what's in it for them. 10years ago, if Hugh Fearnly Whittingstall set foot on Whitby fish quay with a camera crew, saying he wanted to film discards, he, along with the cameras and crew would have been thrown in the harbour (and he wouldnt have been the first to have that happen). For years the commercials denied discards ever existed, now they are happy to broadcast it to the world. Call me suspicious but what's the agenda, I doubt for one moment its fish conservation.

    I'm looking well forward to it too.

    Hate to be pessimistic, but will it really change anything? I mean It'll sure as hell piss people off though, so at least it's a start.

    Posted about this in November, not had much interest probably because I put it in the none fishing chat :embarrass:.

    He received 20,000 sign ups in the first 24 hrs, http://www.fishfight.net/ also on Facebook with updates about celebs and business supporting him. He`s already been banging on the doors in Brussels and got noticed by them. If his chicken thing worked maybe this will.

    Re: Hugh Fearnly Whittingstall Fishing Program

    Throwing fish back is very annoying, but one thing annoys me more whilst Im watching this program. All these commercial fishermen screaming about discards. Yet 5 years ago Discards was a dirty word to them, they wouldn't even admit they existed. Why ?

    Because the lieing cheating scumbags landed it all illegally in the middle of the night - hence the collapse of the cod stocks. The reason they scream now is because the Quota system is finally enforced after years of lapse management.

    Discards are a disgrace and need addressing but lets not forget what commercial fishermen did to the cod stocks at the same time. The simple answer is a days at sea system and no quota. The only time you can garuntee a trawler skipper isnt engaged in skulduggery is when his boats tied to the fish key and hes in the pub. The CFP is to be reformed so I hope to see this issue addressed.
